Makeup for a Vintage Face
What did women from decades before us all have in common that we wish we had now? Perfect makeup. When you look at pictures of your grandmother or classic celebrities like Dorthy Dandridge, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe, their faces are flawless and their hair is always in place. Of course, we don’t have the same makeup lines as they had, but we have some new ones that can give us the vintage face we all want.
When you look at vintage pictures, the first thing you notice is the woman’s flawless skin, which is where concealer comes into play. Use concealer to hide dark spots, under-eye circles, and such. Blend it in well, because you don’t want others to know that you are wearing concealer. Next, make sure that your eyebrows are defined with an arch. Put a little bit of gold eye shadow underneath the arch of your eyebrows to make them appear more shapely. Vintage faces always included a neat and natural a lip color. You must wear either a nude or red lip. Besides, when have you ever seen a photo of Marilyn without a red lip? Make sure that your lipstick is bright and bold. For the eyes, definitely wear black eye liner. You can either make the line thin or thick, but pair thin eyeliner with red lipstick and thick eyeliner with a nude lip.
These are just a few tricks, but you can always ask your grandma what she did to look so foxy back in the day!
